Ecclesiastes 3:1-4 (NIV)
There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance,
There are times in your life when friends and family expect you to be sad, downtrodden, heartbroken, a flat out mess when you experience hardship in your life. However, you are happy, hopeful, joyful, and peaceful. Now, I am not saying that we do not grieve, because all we do, and it is a necessary process. Even the scripture indicates that there is a time for everything. Yet, sometimes people grieve while going through the wind, cloudy days, and the drizzling. During these times, when few prayers go up and calls come your way! Therefore, when the storm hits, while people are calling expecting sadness, you are dancing in the rain awaiting your rainbow. Your rainbow that not only represents the covenant with God's chosen people but the covenant that God will never leave nor forsake you, the covenant that trouble does not last always, the covenant that greater is coming, and the covenant that the rain is just to purify you to be whole for the next blessings in your life! Today, I encourage you to first and foremost be honest with yourself and reflect on your time during your grieving process. I encourage you to create healthy structural outlets so you can be purified by the rain and not drowned in the rain. I encourage to be steadfast in the covenant that God has promised you. I encourage you to keep dancing and don't stop moving because your blessing is coming! It's your time!
